ESPNews: Who writes this crap?

    Add ESPNews to the list of things that suck about ESPN. These are, I kid you not, the voice-over and lead-in to the David Ortiz story:

    VOICEOVER: "David Ortiz went from being clutch to clutching his heart."

    LEAD-IN: "David Ortiz usually makes the hearts of other teams race. Now it's his heart racing."

    It's like amateur hour here. That Boom Goes The Dynamite kid should have an anchor gig on ESPNews.

    What. The. Fuck. For the love of God, don't let these guys talk about Jon Lester.

    BYH used to be a bitter young hack. Now he's hacked at the young and bitter.

    I was off in the anchor's lead-in (stupid inaccurate media!!). It went "When facing David Ortiz, it's usually opposing batters who have a rapid heartbeat."

    Still pretty goddamn awful.

    "David Ortiz leads the Red Sox's offensive attack. Now he must worry about a heart attack."

    I sometimes wish ESPNews was part of my cheap "Classic Cable" package. Then I actually try to watch it. Cures me every time.

    "The Red Sox' 2006 season is dead. Hopefully, Big Papi won't be next."

    Yeah, it sucks. Quit bitching. Send in a resume and go work there and make it better, or STFU.

    Yeah, but they haven't hired a comedy-club reject since Bob Ley.

    "As usual, the Red Sox are in need a heart transplant. But this time they'll have to wait in line behind David Ortiz."

    "Are the Redsox' chances as dead as David Ortiz may end up? Stay tuned!"
